Mitchell County- The Balfour Pole Company has only been in Mitchell County for about a year. Vice-President, Mike Jones, says business has not been very good this year.

Jones says what would make business pick up is a storm or hurricane, like Tropical Storm Isidore, but he says Isidore has not damaged enough utility poles or decks for the company to be in demand.

He adds that it is not very hard to find the wood they need because many landowners realize how much they can make by selling it to the company.

While Jones says he isn't hoping for more destruction from the storm, he does hope business will pick up soon.

Jones says last March, the company got a boost after a bad ice storm in Oklahoma.
